I'm trying to identify a music video I saw once in the 1990's. I'm going to say it was VH1 in America. The song was fairly standard alternative rock --nothing about it is particularly memorable to me --but the video's imagery has stuck with me.

The narrative is about a person who seems to be the only one left after something --the Rapture? --has suddenly removed all other human beings. Scenes include food left cooking, cars abandoned on the freeway, and the main character deliberating over whether to leave money while scavenging from an abandoned store.

In the last scene, he is on top of a building (contemplating suicide?) when he unexpectedly views a woman darting in-and-out of sight far away down at the street level.

  • "Black Hole Sun" by Soundgarden maybe??? – steelersquirrel Aug 29 '15 at 4:29
  • @steelerfan I guess that matches the headline, but not much else was similar. This video was realistic and somber, not cartoonish and garish. It was like a complete short film --I don't recall any shots of the band at all. – Chris Sunami supports Monica Aug 29 '15 at 5:14
  • Yeah, I thought it was a shot in the dark. I haven't seen that video in years, from what I remembered it sounded somewhat like the description. But then again, some of the 90's are a bit blurry to me :) – steelersquirrel Aug 29 '15 at 5:19
